For me, Iceland is synonymous is waterfalls – even visitors who do not stray far from the Reykjavik area will see countless waterfalls, as they litter the harsh but spectacular landscape. Thanks to increasingly inexpensive flight options, Iceland is now more accessible than ever and is something of an amusement park for outdoorsy people like myself. This gallery features a number of my favorite locations in the Reykjavik area: Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Kerid Crater, downtown Reykjavik, and the crashed DC-3 plane along Iceland’s southern coast.
Occasionally referred to as the “Venice of the North,” Stockholm, Sweden is a charming Scandinavian city with saffron-hued streets situated on fourteen separate islands. The small, historic city center is easy to navigate on foot and filled with scenic vistas, distinctively northern European architecture, and waterfront panoramas. This gallery features photographs taken at some of my favorite places around Stockholm: Gamla Stan, Djurgarden, Ostermalm, and Sodermalm.
